Wire drawing is a metalworking process used to reduce the cross-section of a wire by pulling the
wire through a single, or series of, drawing die(s). There are many applications for wire
drawing, including electrical wiring, cables, tension-loaded structural components, springs,
paper clips, spokes for wheels, and stringed musical instruments. Although similar in process,
drawing is different from extrusion, because in drawing the wire is pulled, rather than pushed,
through the die. Drawing is usually performed at room temperature, thus classified as a cold
working process, but it may be performed at elevated temperatures for large wires to reduce
forces.
